Should Mikel Arteta’s men win at the Etihad Stadium, something they have failed to do since 2015, they will return to the top of the Premier League due to their superior goal difference.

If the defending champions are victorious, Liverpool will end the Easter weekend as league leaders with a point advantage going into the upcoming round of midweek fixtures.

After seeing his side defeat Brighton on Merseyside, Klopp was asked by Sky Sports what result he is hoping for between Arsenal and City. The German jokingly replied, “Both losing”.

The game has been labelled as one of the most important games of Arteta’s tenure in north London since departing City in 2019. The Spaniard suffered three defeats against the Citizens last season but has already defeated his former side in the Premier League and Community Shield this term.

Pundits throughout the week have claimed that three points for the Gunners in Manchester could be a huge step in their hopes of becoming English champions for the first time in two decades.
